Kevin Durant has a long way to go before he gets to Kobe Bryant status, no matter with the talking heads of 1st Take tell you.
Kobe isn’t one to give out compliments to opposing players, but when asked how he would describe KD here is what he said.
“A 6-11 me,”
“That dog in him?” Byrant asked. “He’s got it in him.”
For Kobe to compare himself to anyone is probably the highest compliment he could give Durant. It is easy after Game 1 to anoint Durant, but legacies are made over years and years of consistent high level of play.
I have always seen Kevin Durant as Jason Bourne, the reason why is his game is so efficient it is like all instinct.
His kills are measured and he always seems in control.
The league should be afraid if he does get on a Kobe like roll, because he might be the one with not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, you know the rest.
